Dos alumnes de Formentera premiats per investigar el cicle de l’aigua

entrega-premis-aqualia1Els dibuixos de Pablo Wenham Martínez, del CEIP Sant Ferran de ses Salines, i d’Ana Burches, del CEIP Mestre Lluís Andreu, han resultat finalistes en la 17a edició del Concurs Digital Infantil convocat per Aqualia, empresa que gestiona el Servei Municipal d’Aigües de Formentera. Els seus treballs han estat elegits entre els més de 7.200 participants, procedents dels municipis d’Espanya en els que Aqualia presta servei. En total han estat premiats 250 dibuixos.

La Presidenta del Consell Insular, Alejandra Ferrer, i la Consellera de Cultura, Susana Labrador, acompanyades de la responsable del Servei Municipal d’Aigua, M. del Mar Yern, han felicitat als guardonats i els han lliurat els seus premis, un rellotge intel·ligent per a cadascú. La presidenta ha agraït a Aqualia que faci aquest tipus de concurs i a les escoles que col·laboren amb el certamen perquè així “es crea conscienciació entre els infants de la necessitat de tenir cura d’un bé tan escàs com necessari, com és l’aigua”.

El concurs es va convocar amb motiu del Dia Mundial de l’Aigua per ensenyar als nens i nenes el valor de gestionar adequadament el cicle de l’aigua i la feina que suposa portar-la a les cases en quantitat i qualitat, així com tornar-la a la natura de forma sostenible.

En aquesta edició els joves alumnes de 3r i 4rt de Primària havien de convertir-se en investigadors per resoldre d’on prové l’aigua que consumeixen cada dia i a on va després d’utilitzar-la. Per això, la web www.investigadorsdelaigua.cat posava a la seva disposició gran quantitat de material educatiu sobre la gestió del cicle integral de l’aigua, així com una secció especial per conèixer els Objectius de Desenvolupament Sostenible i el compromís d’Aqualia amb l’Agenda 2030.

Students back in class today at Consell's two nurseries

escoleta1Monday marked the start of the 2019-2020 academic calendar at the Consell de Formentera's two early-childhood learning centres, or escoletes: Sa Miranda and Camí Vell. Of 128 spots initially available for one- to two-year-olds and two- to three-year-olds, 19 remain. The infant group is full, and there are currently no names on the wait list.

Fifteen educators and two classroom aides will look after children's well being during what education councillor Susana Labrador described as “a crucial growth period”. Labrador said that one of the chief priorities of escoletes is to “help islanders juggle work and family”, and laid stress on the fact that younger students would be “passting a good part of their first years with individuals who care for their needs”.

At this moment in time, Camí Vell has one space in the one- to two-year-old group and five spaces among the two- and three-year-olds. At Sa Miranda, the infant and one- to two-year-old groups are already full, and the two- to three-year-old classrooms have 13 empty spots.
